$17K! Hillary’s Lavish Private Jets Continue to Drain Democrat Candidates of Resources

It is well established that Hillary Clinton flies in style when she jets to rallies, speeches, fundraisers, and other events.  Politico notes FEC filings show another example of Clinton’s travel draining resources from the candidates she campaigns for. The Alison Lundergan Grimes campaign paid “Executive Fliteways” more than $17,000 for “transportation” the day before Clinton turned up in Kentucky for a rally in Louisville with Grimes.

In addition on Friday, November 1, flight records from Fliteways show a private jet traveling from New York to Cincinnati to Lexington to New Orleans. Clinton had events with Alison Lundergan Grimes and Mary Landrieu on Friday. Neither campaign has reported the cost of those trips yet.

Recall that Clinton’s private jet to the Harkin Steak Fry cost the Iowa Democrat Party $50k.  She took another private jet to campaign for Bruce Braley last week, the cost of which is still unknown.

The big question for Clinton will be – was she actually a net financial loser for the candidates she was ostensibly trying to campaign for?

Sure seems like what really happened was Sec. Clinton got midterm Democrats to foot the bill for her 2016 campaign travel.
